I used to think that the Windows Defrag program was all that I needed. Then I started reading about defragging programs (freeware, shareware and paid) and talking to people in the know. There are a couple of good ones I use that do a better job than Windows Defrag, and tonight I’m writing about two of my favorite Windows Utilities, MyDefrag and Defraggler.
UPDATE: The recommendations for MyFrag and CCleaner came from a good friend who is an IT Pro who performs PC maintenance and repair. Since the recommendation for CCleaner is not a direct recommendation for Defraggler, I read Gizmo’s “Best Free Disk De0Fragmenter” page.
Defraggler, which I would have never used without a recommendation because of its name, is written by Piriform, the same people that write CCleaner, another essential Windows Utility. Defraggler can be downloaded from the Piriform Defraggler download page and you will also find more info about the program using the links on the right hand site of the site.
Another great, free Windows defrag program is MyDefrag. Their website is so generic-looking, that again, without a recommendation I would have never used this product. Visit the MyDefrag site and download the latest version, and you can also read about the product. Its got a very interesting screensaver option that can run when your screensaver starts… but read up on it before using it.
